    Default Looking to see if my project can work on the web

    Hello Forum and my first post !!!
    I currently use Microsoft Access for all my database needs and can use queries and reports and they output all the data our organisation requires. These are sent by email to members.
    We know that getting information to members takes too long and we need to find ways to keep members updated much faster so I have a few questions for starters and hoping someone will help guide me in the right direction.
    One way would be to get selected members to input data into a web form and then for that table of data to be sorted to display the current result.
    Let me take one simple example. (Boys Age under 14 - 100 metres Free Style)
    We have a group of local swimming clubs in our County
    Each Club has a weekly race (specific age group and distance)
    Each Club submits their weekly result to myself as Secretary
    Eg Position Member Number Name Time
    1 DC235 AN Other 1 min 34 seconds
    2 DC678 J Smith 1 min 39 seconds
    Etc
    My question is it possible to have a web form to input this information say their Top 8 positions for each Club (we have 12 Clubs in total in the Group) and then sort all that data into a final weekly result?
    If it is possible what direction should I go in and what software to use to create it?
    We have 22 weekly races a year.
    Many thanks for looking.

    Hello Dinge02 ... in truth not very well.

    My Access works just fine but has lots of manual input and Clubs don't always send results to me in the excel format I prefer.

    I purchased a book on PHP and MySQL but that seems a big learning curve.

    Will keep researching to see what I come up with but appreciate you asking as my first reply which surprised me.

    Any help or pointers appreciated.

    This is something that interests me. Newbie as well so I can't offer anything but a bump. Hope some expert would chime in.

    Is your interest in a swimming Club or another application?

    Thanks Dinge02 ... that makes two of us. Very surprising no expert even making a comment. I think I will try another forum if no further answer by end of today.
